HOLY SHIT!!!!!!!!

Ok, I used to think this jam wasn't nearly as awesome as 2/28, but I am listening to this and I am totally blown away. The crazy peak at 18:52 is UNREAL. Ya, it's kind of sloppy, a lot more noodl-ey/Jerry-centric than 2/28, and that might not be some people's thing, but hot damn does this feel inspired right now!

Any opinions on this or this show? I know that this run has been discussed a ton here, so sorry if this is redundant.

Yes, I do have an opinion on this one. It features the best Crypt > TOO > Crypt ever played.

Yes!!!!

The Cryptical reprise is absolutely the most amazing ever performed! The band takes this ultra-jazzy rendition to the Andromeda Galaxy and back! And it segues into the one of the best Death Don'ts ever

totally agree. this run at the fillmore might be my favorite GD run EVER!!

as for 3/2 though, i think the other nights are even better. don't let that detract from how good 3/2 is though. the death don't have no mercy from this show is the most spine-chilling, perfect version i've ever heard. the whole cryptical suite is one of the best they ever played and the eleven is super hot too. the real highlight of the show imo is the 25 min jam before caution.
